The Keroril of III)' Republican Parly. To assert that every measure passed during tho past thirtoen years, was tiie very best that human wisdom could devise, would be to claim human perfection. This wo do assert, however, without fear of contradiction, that wliat lias proven to be defective, Congress has im proved upon; that whicli it knew to be wrong, it abolished; and that which it believed was right and necessary to the prosperity, happi ness, and protection of the people, it framod it into law. Add to its acts of legislation, the constitutional amendments which it submitted to the people, the moral triumph over England in tiie settle ment of tiie Alabama claims and tho disputed San Juan boundary, and a wise policy that lias secured peace and friendship with ail the civilized nations of tiie earth during the existence of Republican power, and wo have a party record, on legislation alone, that must stand out through ail time as the best argumont to prove tiie patriotism and virtue of the Republican party, and tiie consummate wisdom which has characterized the statesmanship that controlled u To review the record of tho party, and claim, as our opponents do, that its mission ended with the abolition ol slavery and tiie close of the war, is to claim that the mission of the English language onded when it recorded the Lord’s prayer. The principles of our party, like tiie ap plication of tho mother tongue, are all pervading in their influence and power. The abolition of slavery, the doing away of great public wrongs, the enactment of wise laws, were but natural incidents growing out ot tho application of just prin ciples. These principles cannot change, and if at times tho people are disposed to find fault with tho party, tho trouble will be found, if they will carefully seek it, not in the principles of the party, but in the unworthiuess of those elected to apply them. And here the remedy should bo applied. The people should guard with zealous care the ballot-box, and see that none but the best and purest men are elected to represent or govern them. Tho party itself is the embodiment of the intelligence, loyaltjr, and virtue of the people. If it fails to impress those qualities on its official acts, it is because the people themselves have failed to do their duty at the primary meeting and at the ballot box. If it wero possible to make the Republican party of the future an improvement on the past, that pos sibility is within the reach of tho people themselves. THE REPl'BLIl'AS PARTY. No party has merited more from the people since the government was founded than the Republican party. During the term of its existence it has settled many of the great issues which had long agitated the country and threatened its political dissolu tion. The story of these great events is too recent to he recited here. The achievements of the Republican party have been the achievements of the country through one of its most eventful and illustrious periods. To write the record ot tho nation, is to write the progress and triumph of this great party in its declaration for universal liberty; for tlie perpetuity ot the Uuion; for the just rights of the States; for the beneficent cause of popular education; for the im provement and development of all parts of our national domain; ior honorable peace with all nations; for equity and comity among all men; for the security of human life, prop erty and character; for the purity of elections; for the proper authority and due administration of each de partment of our complicated system of government; for the payment of the national debt, and the stability of the public credit; for fidelity, im partiality and capability in office, and for the general happiness and the greatest good of the entire popu lation of tho land-. And while pro fessing these aims and objects, it has not been wanting in earnest efforts to make good its word. No cost of time, labor or exjionse, iias been spared to discover tho truth of a'lle gations against officials and agents of public affairs, and this through a period of calumny more bitter and relentless than has over before been known in tho history of American politics. No party has been more willing to confess and repair mis takes, when clearly pointed out. No party has made an equal record of great results. It is a partv of pro gre.ss and political reform. It be lieves in the growth of civilization. It is now grappling with tiro vital questions of tho time. It will make every groat issuo in the national policy for many years to come, since there is no other party now existing i or that can bo organized, which may | by any possibility be in a more ad- [ vanced position on all questions! which concern tho vital interests of the Republic! It is UNi'onTUNATij tor the Demo cratic party that it cannot control the rullians which belong to it long enough to get into power. Just when it needs public confidence it loses it. Just when tho people are beginning to feel that the party lias reformed and means well, and that tho Devil lias been cast out ot it, the cloven-foot shows itself, and the old-time rascality crops out in full bloom. Democracy has a horrible load to stagger under; and, to add to its burden by increasing its power, would bo little short of cru elty. When it succeeds in civilizing Georgia and Texas it may turn its attention to the nation. If the rifle and knife prove effective civilizing agencies in those States, it may pay to introduce those novel instruments of political reform a little farther North. Uutwefuar the experiment will fail. Conversion through fear : is not very lasting, and the power : thus gained is only for a day. De ! mocracy should issuo a proclamation ! to tho faithful, urging them to np i pear honest and law-abiding citizens ■ until the party is enthroned at tho ! national capital. It will he hard work for the faithful to affect the disguise, hut it may pay if kept up for a score of years. Present.—Over fitly ladies were present last evening at the meeting of the Republicans in Dayton. The audience was the most orderly we have seen in tho State. TELEGRAPHIC. Special to the Tri-Woo kly Times [By Western Union Tei-egbafh Linn.] New York, October 29.—The bark Abbey Bacon, from Malaga, arrived here yesterday, having on board Captain Leary, with his wife and child and a company of seven men of the schooner Dauntless, which left St. Thomas October 3, with salt for Lunenburg, N. S., and went down in a gale on the night of Oc tober 22. The rescued persons were four days in an open boat, living on half a biscuit and a little water each. Tho Time* Washington special says a well known Massachusetts Republican, who reached Washing ton this morning, reports a good deal of demoralization in the party there. The prohibition platform is driving off thousands of Repub licans from the support of the ticket in the cities and towns where a license policy is favored. It is thought that tho State ticket will be beaten, though a large reduction in the usual Republican majority is conceded, the opposition are very confident of securing throe, if not four, of tho Congressmen. The Herald publishes tho follow ing, dated New Orleans, October 2S: The Conservative leaders last even ing held a meeting, and decided to commence criminal proceedings against Governor Kellogg, General Longstreet, Badger, and all the rad ical leaders for murder. The charge will bo conspiracy on the 14th of September against the lives- of cit izens while in tho exercise of rights guaranteed under tho Constitution in removing and protecting arms. San Francisco, October 29.—Alfred Paraf and Van Brunt, of the Oleo margarine Company, are on trial for forging again to-day, in the Muni cipal Court. A largo crowd is in attendance. Mrs. Paraf is to testify to-day. The Coroner found that tbo old man, George Glover, found dead in the What Cheer House yesterday, came to his death through a natural cause, consumption. The steamer Cyphroncs, from Australia, arrived this morning. The Now Mint will be turned over to General J.aGrange on the tilth of November. The stock market to-day is report ed weak, with tbo probability of a still further decline. On California street there is considerable excite ment about its condition, and many who are holding stocks are decided ly puzzled as to tbo best course to pursue, still loping,the decline is only transient.

The leaders of their party here in Nevada are old rebels, tho very men who took tho lead in taking the Southern States out of the Union, because they wished to strengthen and extend slavery more than it could be extended and strengthened in tho Union, even when Democracy governed it—for it must always be remembered that the Democrats could have retained possession of tho general government in 1861 had they remained united, and that they promoted secession in their own party in order that it might I be made successful at the South. Such men show tho most consum ! mate Impudence when they talk about political freedom, and tho | Union, and local rights, when it is self-evident that their purpose is to keep alive the old dispute with tho | nation; to keep up tho old preju dices; and to feed tho Southern mind with the hope of vengeance, and a revival of war for the “ Lost Cause.” NEW TO-DAY.
